The Antique and Classic Boat Society is committed to offering and supporting educational programs.

Through formats such as articles, workshops, symposiums, and on-line “how-to” videos for members to view, we seek to create and produce a variety of methods to teach the skills and knowledge needed to maintain, preserve, and restore these beautiful classic boats. Programs and activities are geared toward all ages. Through the ACBS Scholarship Endowment Fund, we are able to provide financial assistance to deserving students in an approved boat building program who have made the decision to learn the skills and craftsmanship needed to sustain our classic boating heritage. These students not only develop the skills, but also the appreciation of the heritage of these craft. ACBS supports five boat building schools in the U.S. with an annual contribution of $5,000 to each school. 

Our commitment toward education is witnessed throughout the events and activities in the organization. We are excited about knowledge being shared, skills being mastered, and the history we are preserving for future generations.
